The secret to Frog Yoga Alphabet’s likeability is its versatility.
Kids are insatiable and naturally curious. They are interested in playing the role of leader, they love to use their imagination,
And they have to have lots of fun in order to really learn.
The frog illustrations are an immediate attractor factor. Good, clean design is intrinsic to learning. Plus, pre-school to teens . . . frogs are cool at school.

Simple, Fun Ways I Use Frog Yoga Alphabet With 4-to-9-year olds
I teach a 10-week yoga studio class, with weekly one-hour sessions. Here are the top ways my 4 to 9-year-olds like to participate:
- #1 My Yoga Name Book ~ The kids learn the poses from the Frog Yoga Alphabet. Using the Frog Yoga Flash Cards they spell their names, practice the corresponding yoga poses, and then we bind their coloured in letters together to create a book. The last class is parent presentation. The kids perform their book for the audience . . . they love being the teacher and the experience is especially bonding. The kids feel empowered.
- #2 Hangman Yoga ~ Adding frog yoga poses to the traditional hangman word game is a great way for elementary school kids to identify letters and words. Movement really locks in retention. I print the pre-drawn hangman page in the workbook and choose the word. For each letter picked, the class does the pose for a count of 3 breaths. Then they get to see if their pick was a good one!
- #3 Frog Yoga Word Scramble ~ I choose a 5 letter word and tape a letter upside down on the backs of 5 children. The children with the letters on their backs, get into handstands in a row, by placing their feet up the wall so that their letter shows rightside up. Then the remaining children take turns unscrambling the word by directing one child at a time to move into a new position. The children do this until the letters are in the correct order and the word is revealed. It is a creative way to learn new words, practice spelling and a fun way to keep the kids focused.
Frog Yoga Alphabet works equally well in the classroom or the yoga studio. School teachers, kids yoga teachers, parents . . . the tool is here, the rest is up to you.
